You hear it right, after rumors swirling that Mr. Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Marvel’s sorcerer supreme in Thor: Ragnarok, Disney has confirmed it.
In a statement from Disney’s D23 website, it reads “If you need even more intergalactic, world-saving action, Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new”.
Of course, there was a spoiler for this (if you cared to wait) in the end credit for Dr. Strange where Thor seems to request some favor from the Doctor.
Excited? We’ll have to wait ’til November to actually watch the movie.
Oh, no, I am not going to spoil anything for you. But instead, I am going to make you a tip. After the movie, don’t rush to get out of the cinema just yet. As with tradition of all Marvel superhero films, there is a cut-scene mid credit. But better yet still, with Doctor Strange, there is another after all the credits. I will not be giving out the details. It is for you to find out what it is about. Again, 2 post-credit scenes.
The musical score for SpiderMan Homecoming will come from the same composer of Doctor Strange
Marvel Studios, with Sony Music, are going massive lengths at making sure the movie Spider-Man: Homecoming is just as great as the recent superhero film releases. And probably greater than the previous takes on the Spiderman movies franchise. It is a long time since we had seen Spider-Man in his own film (the recent one starring Andrew Garfield), and with Marvel’s success with Doctor Strange, what better way than a followup by the same genius Michael Giacchino for its musical score.
Here’s a sampling of Michael Giacchino from Doctor Strange:
Michael Giacchino was the man behind the musical scores of Doctor Strange (Marvel), Star Trek Beyond, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He will once again be providing the score for Spider-Man: Homecoming according to an announcement made at a Q&A for SpiderMan Homecoming with the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, and the director of Doctor Strange, Scott Derrickson.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is expected to land in theaters July 7, 2017, with the casts including Tom Holland (as Peter Parker/SpiderMan), Marisa Tomei (from My Cousin Vinny and The Wrestler, as Aunt May), Robert Downey Jr. (as Iron Man, The Avengers), Zendaya (rumored as Mary Jane Watson), Michael Keaton (rumored as Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Tyne Daly, Donald Glover and more.

Marvel does usually release tie-in prequel comics for its movies that fill in some background details that aren’t explicitly underlined in the final film. So, it won’t be especially surprising if it does the same for Homecoming.
That being said, Homecoming being a reboot of the Spider-Man movie series means background details are going to be a bit more crucial…
We will all be waiting how the new Spiderman Homecoming movie turns out!
Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), a young, arrogant surgeon with a promising career, loses his ability to operate after a terrible accident. Despondent and suicidal, Dr. Strange seeks advice from a mystical being known as the Ancient One and learns that he is the newly designated Sorcerer Supreme, responsible for protecting the planet from evil. With his girlfriend Clea and his loyal assistant Wong in tow, Strange sets out to fulfill his destiny
